Here’s a bit more of the Indian flavours for you! I tried to make an Indian sauce from scratch the other day and it turned out great! And it was soo much simpler than I imagined.. (I should have done this ages ago!)
1 can of chopped tomatoes (400g)
1 onion (really.. I didn’t have any and just skipped it without any problems)
1 clove of garlic
1 minced chili
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp (ground) cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tbsp Garam Masala
1/2 lemon – juiced
1 can of chick peas (400g)
rice and/or naan bread and sallad!
I cooked my carrots in the sauce and they “vanished” when I used the hand blender in the end. Because of this I didn’t bother to finely mince/grate the ginger. You could replace the carrot with other veg you like (or just add some more). I forgot to add the garlic to the picture!
Then I added the juice from half a lemon to the sauce, whizzed it up and tasted – it was really yummy and I only added a little more tabasco. I don’t have any plated pictures of this as I didn’t eat it right away but brought some to work yesterday and some for lunch today. I’ll try to remember to take a picture of my lunch. LOL! I have one more portion in my freezer and then I gave the rest of the sauce to PA and he brought it home and had this for dinner yesterday too (and gave it his approval).
